Pain In The Neck When Looking After A Collision
I want to ask the doc, I have had a sore neck for two years, the beginning of pain when I played on the beach, because the waves were pretty hard so I was carried by the waves and my friend’s foot-swelling was very hard in my opinion. Because of the time of impact, my neck hurts for right and left. A month and two months still pain and often dizzy. Until now, if you look above, it’s rather difficult and painful. Is it dangerous, doc? Do I need to see a doctor? Because my aunt said a nurse, it was only her nerves that were shocked. What do the doctors think?
Hello Tia thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer the problem you have provided.
Respond to your question about neck pain that occurs continuously for approximately 2 years. There are several things that must be suspected, including injury to muscles, bones, or nerves. I can not confirm directly, because the need for a direct examination by a doctor. Investigation also seems necessary as X-rays in accordance with clinical findings during physical examination. Seeing the condition of complaints that have lasted 2 years, the possibility that even if there is a problem is only a mild problem, but because the time lasts can be very disruptive to your daily life. My advice you can consult a neurologist for problems you experience. At this time what you can do include:
Avoid excessive activities, such as lifting heavy objects, sports that involve physical direct or high risk of collision.
Avoid doing massage on the neck excessively.
Use a high pillow when you sleep.
Maintain a sturdy position when sitting.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
